Predictions on Who Will Win the 2012 US Open

Tiger Woods is a considerable favourite to win the 2012 US Open, but I don’t see the value. Woods won the 2012 PGA Memorial last weekend after a stellar final round, but the US Open is going to be more contested. Woods has been shaky at best since his return and at only 6/1 odds I can’t see any reason to back him.

Woods has struggled this year with accuracy and putting at times and that won’t be fine on a course like the Olympic Club. Tiger definitely has some confidence and momentum heading into the 2012 US Open, but I think the winner will be someone else. One of the golfers I’m going to bet on this weekend is Rory Mcilroy who won the 2011 US Open with a -16 under par performance.

Mcilroy isn’t in fine form at the moment, but I think he may have been looking ahead a bit to this event. Mcilroy has missed the cut in his last two tournaments (The Players Championship & PGA Memorial) and needs to improve quickly. The year started out so well for Mcilroy, but the young superstar golfer hasn’t been able to keep it together.

I think at +1200 we’re getting a bit of value on Mcilroy this weekend because not too many bettors will want to back him with his current form. Mickelson will be a popular pick at the 2012 US Open. Phil finished in 3rd at the 2012 Masters and he could have won the tournament potentially if he didn’t shoot a triple bogey in the final round on a par 3.

Mickelson seems to rise up for the majors and he’ll be extremely motivated this weekend. Mickelson has won just about every tournament there is to win except for the US Open. If we look at the past winners of the US Open we can see that underdogs have won several times recently including Graeme McDowell (2010), Lucas Glover (2009) and Angel Cabrera (2007).

Hunter Mahan is my longshot pick to win and finish in the T5. Mahan can be bet to finish in the T5 at Bet365 Mobile by placing a bet on Hunter in the each-way market. The payout on Mahan to finish T5 is +825 and I think he’ll be close. Mahan finished in T12 at the 2012 Masters and he has had great season that has included 2 wins already.

• Bet on Rory Mcilroy to Win +1200

• Bet on Hunter Mahan to Win +4000 & T5 +825
